New Summary of Existing Policy and Guiding Principles Now Available

April 8, 2016
The 2016 Summary of Existing Policy and Guiding Principles is available on the League’s website.
 
A hard copy of this document will be emailed out to all city managers and city clerks.

The Summary of Existing Policy and Guiding Principles is intended to be a living reference, updated periodically to reflect changes to League policy made throughout the year. In addition, the League uses it to review new legislation that is introduced to determine how it relates to existing League policy. It was developed with the assistance of organization’s the eight standing League policy committees and board of directors to ensure that the content accurately reflects existing League policy.
 
The 2016 edition reflects policy changes adopted by the League through December 2015 through review of legislation and annual conference resolutions. The Summary of Existing Policy and Guiding Principles is intended to be a living reference, updated periodically to reflect changes to League policy made throughout the year. In addition, the League uses it to review new legislation that is introduced to determine how it relates to existing League policy.
 
Member cities are encouraged to review the document carefully as it can be of assistance in better understanding League policy and positions on state and federal legislation. In addition, the League encourages cities to adopt all or part of the Summary so that they may be able to respond in a timely manner to new legislation introduced at the state and federal levels. This will permit cities to become more active in the legislative process and involved in issues impacting cities.
